World Solar Challenge: Evening, Day 3

Here are the World Solar Challenge GPS positions as at 17:00 Tuesday October 20 (Darwin time) – the finish of Day 3 of the race.

Calculated road distances below are approximate, based on interpolation between the known road distances to control stops. The second road distance shown (in grey) is adjusted to compensate for GPS delays. The top fifteen Challenger teams are Twente (21), Nuon (3), Michigan (2), Tokai (10), Punch (8), Stanford (16), Kecskemét (23), Arrow (30), EAFIT (5), WSU (13), UKZN (14), Blue Sky (77), Goko High Scool (25), Jönköping Uni (46), and Nagoya (47) in that order. Nuon is camping just shy of Coober Pedy, with Twente still a whisker ahead of them.

In the Cruiser class, Kogakuin (88) came into Alice at 11:17, Eindhoven (40) at 12:01, and Bochum (11) at 16:00. Minnesota (35) and Sunswift (75) had to make it to Alice by 17:00 but, sadly, they did not. See the tracker page, timing board, and social media for continued updates.

    So driving speeds will possible be lower. Will they (challengers) make it as far as Redhill like Nuon last time?
    Red Hill appropriate name for The Red One 😉

    Cruiser class will have to deal with clouds tomorrow, but for now they are almost al looking at the Henley on Todd Regatta track …….
